Bryan Singer and Co. explain fresh take
At 14, Toronto school friends Steve "Lips" Kudlow and Robb Reinter made a pact to rock together forever. They meant it.
Their band, Anvil, went on to become the "demigods of Canadian metal", releasing one of the heaviest albums in metal history, 1982's Metal on Meal. The album influenced a musical generation, including Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, that went on to sell millions of records. But Anvil's career took a different paty straight to obscurity.
Director Sacha Gervasi has concocted a wonderful and often hilarious account of Anvil's last ditch quest for elusive fame and fortune. His ingenious filmmaking may first lead you to think this a mockumentary, but it isn't. Gervasi joined the legendary heavy metal band as a roadie for a tour of Candanian hockey arenas, so he has intimate insight into the members' eccentricities. It's fascinating to see the reality of their day-to-day lives as they struggle to make ends meet, take a misguided European tour, and engage in antics on the road, which is not always lined with fans. Gervasi even finds a softer center to this raucous film, introducing us to band members' ever-supportive but long-suffering families.

What if a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate? In this alternate version of present day Los Angeles, a revolutionary device called the TiMER fulfills this very fantasy. For a reasonable installation fee and a moderate monthly charge, a TiMER is implanted in the wrist and promises to accurately display the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds until the owner's date with destiny.
However, things aren't so easy for Oona O'Leary (EMMA CAULFIELD, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Oona faces the rare dilemma of a blank TiMER her soul mate, whoever and wherever he is, doesn't have a TiMER. While her family and friends move through life with predetermined romantic fates, Oona searches for her perfect match via the process of elimination, tentatively dating TiMER-less men, but never getting emotionally invested. Often, Oona even convinces her suitors to get TiMERs, only to have her hopes crushed time and time again. Staring down the barrel of thirty and tired of waiting for her would-be life partner to get off the dime, Oona breaks her own rules and falls for Mikey (JOHN PATRICK AMEDORI, Gossip Girl), a charming and inappropriately young supermarket clerk with a countdown of four months.
